Pedestrian Accident and Hit-and-Run Injury Attorney
When a negligent driver flees the scene of a crash, there is very little need to investigate fault. The suspect in this accident will certainly be brought up on criminal hit-and-run charges in the event that they are found. Police will likely be focusing their efforts on finding the suspect in order to hold them accountable for their negligent behavior. Once the suspect is found, there will most likely be very serious grounds for a personal injury lawsuit to follow.
Pedestrian accidents are often among the most severe, and the devastating injuries left behind are typically fraught with physical, emotional, and financial anguish. Due to high hospital bills, future medical needs, and loss of wages, many victims will opt in favor of pursuing a claim for compensation. However, only the victim is in the position to decide if filing a personal injury claim is the legal path they wish to follow.
